3D Printing and the Dental Crown Manufacturing Process

By Dental Team / April 14, 2021

In the past, digital workflows used a combination of CAD/CAM software and CNC milling to make crowns. 3D printers could not make permanent crowns because the materials did not have the appropriate mechanical properties, and there was poor accuracy or fit. With recent advancements in 3D-printable resins, 3D printers can produce permanent crowns that meet mechanical property requirements and make them faster and more cost-effectively than CNC milling. 3D printing is streamlining the dental crown manufacturing process and can benefit labs and dental practices.
